Today’s image is one that invites the imagination to come out and play.
What is it?
A Zen area of raked gravel?
A remnant of ancient pagan ritual?
Any other ideas?
Actually, It’s an ivy-covered stump (at least, I think it is) surrounded by a lawn covered in a blanket of fallen cherry blossom.
Fleeting, and beautiful.
Now, that ancient pagan temple…
Edited to add: Sometimes my gardening students are mischievous. The identity of the ‘object’ under the ivy was not disclosed. I assumed. Now I’ve been given a clue: It can only be used on sunny days.
A sundial then! But it is still fallen cherry blossom.
